Home Evening Guides
The home is the great "center of gospel learning." (President Russell M. Nelson) These home evening guides are intended to support parents in teaching their children about the plan of salvation, procreation, and the sanctity of human life. The guides are also provided for adult Latter-day Saints to gather and learn these truths together.
Heavenly Father Gave Us Our Bodies | Ages: 11-18
Discuss with youth the truths that Heavenly Father gave us our bodies, the sacred gift of procreation, and the responsibility to safeguard life.
Heavenly Father Gave Us Our Bodies | Ages: older teen to adult
Discuss with older teens and adults about the sin of elective abortion, the gift of our bodies, and our responsibility to protect life.
Tips for Using the FHE Guides
Pray with your family before and after each lesson to invite the Spirit. He is the real teacher.
Adapt the guides to fit your needs. These guides are only scaffolds; parents know best how to teach their children.
If you have time, study more on the topic beforehand (or afterward) using the sources in our library.
Keep the conversation going. Continue to teach and speak about these doctrines with your family.
